Our storage area for boat stuff and below the charming story-teller and the co-founder of Hallberg-Rassy...Mr. Rassy himself!
Unpacked, and most questions answered...will our stuff still be here in June? We saw many cases of beer and wine from other boat owners, one must import the good stuff (or mortgage the house to buy it in Sweden)
After an overnight ferry ride and approximately 10 hours on the road, we reached our goal, the shipyard of Hallberg-Rassy in Ellös, Sweden.
And finally, our first look at 'Kind of Blue'. She was stunning! There was a quote from Katherine Hepburn in the move 'The Philadelphia Story', she called the boat that she and Cary Grant had sailed, 'Yar'. I have never found that word in the dictionary, but it seemed to pop into my head.
We couldn't believe how advanced her construction was! Magnus, the forman, below, said she is about 2 weeks away from being done!
